The knights Order of Lion Rampant was formed in the early 1990's as a Tournament Society with a focus on structured and trained, but not choreographed, Medieval Combat. Whilst our period has advanced to encompass the end of the Fourteenth century and the membership of the group has changed with time our commitment to quality in performance and in historical interpretation has not changed. In the past Lion Rampant has re created gun crews, a small 'Free Company' of foot soldiers and archers, jousting and other mounted combat, knighting Ceremonies, Trials by Ordeal, Latin Mass and even staged (to our knowledge), the first Allegorical Tournament since the end of the Middle Ages. Most recently some of our members have embarked on some experimental archeology on their search for the ideals of feminine beauty in the middle ages and come up with a display on the creation and application of an exceptional range of beauty products for both the medieval woman and man! We have performed at Brisbane Medieval Fair, The Abbey Tournament, "History Alive" and a multitude of Private functions including Jupiter’s and Treasury Casinos and St Johns Cathedral (the worlds 'newest' Gothic Cathedral). We have also partnered with the Queensland Museum and The Abbey Museum to stage a major museum exhibition.

We have Beautiful Ladies in all manner of finery and some of the finest Gentlemen of Coat Armour to be found. Lion Rampant has a close working relationship with other local and interstate medieval groups and our wonderful musician friends Wayward.

In recent years we have even expanded into a secondary impressions as our early medieval alter-eg Hastae Amorica. With this as a secondary focus it has opened a new range of performance possibilities to us, both public and private.

Lion Rampant is always welcoming new people and new ideas into the group. We are proud to be a leader in historical re-enactment in Australia and have received high praise from our international peers. We continue to move forward and apply our innovative approach to give our members and the public the experience of the medieval tournament and Pas D'Armes .
